Speaking to L’Équipe, Lyon forward Memphis Depay revealed Barcelona’s interest and admitted he is close to leaving the Ligue 1 side.

On Barcelona

“Barcelona are interested in signing me, it’s true. But there are also other clubs in the race. I’ve not decided on my future at the moment. I need some time then I’ll choose my next club.

“Today, I am a free agent, so the negotiation should not be too difficult, my mother could do it!

On Lyon

“I have a lion on my back, so Lyon & I, we were made for each other. I have zero regrets about having come to Lyon… I am thinking about adding a tattoo: a memory with a date.”
